Sridhar Katakam

This members-only tutorial provides the steps to register a custom “Is Archive” condition in Oxygen using which elements can be output (or not) only if the current page is an archive or not.

Step 1

Install and activate Code Snippets plugin.

Go to Snippets > Add New.

Title: [Condition] Is Archive?


if ( function_exists( 'oxygen_vsb_register_condition' ) ) {
// Condition Name.
'Is Archive?',
// Values: The array of pre-set values the user can choose from.
// Set the custom key's value to true to allow users to input custom values.
'options' => array( 'true', 'false' ),
'custom'  => false,
// Operators.
array( '==' ),
// Callback Function: Name of function that will be used to handle the condition.
// Condition Category: Default ones are Archive, Author, Other, Post, User.
* Callback function to handle the condition.
* @param  mixed  $value      Input value - true or false selected by the user.
* @param  string $operator   Comparison operator, =.
* @return boolean              true or false.
function wpdd_is_archive_callback( $value, $operator ) {
return 'true' === $value ? is_archive() : ! is_archive();

Step 2

Apply the condition on the element(s) of your choice in the Oxygen editor.

The condition can be found under “Other” category.
